Carson Russell Chemerinski, 1917-2001
Carson Russell Chemerinski passed away at the High Prairie Hospital on Dec. 8, 2001, at the age of 84 years.
Carson was born on April 29, 1917 to William and Julie Chemerinski of High Prairie. Carson, following school, served in the Canadian Armed Forces during World War II. Upon returning home from service, Carson established a small lumber business on his family's farm. He operated his sawmill until 1950, when he and his wife Anne decided to purchase farmland and engage in the agricultural field. Carson, with the help of his son-in-law Calvin, was able to farm until his death.
The lumber for the first Legion Hall in High Prairie was made and donated by Carson from his sawmill. Over the years Carson volunteered in the community and was active in the Royal Canadian Legion, Masonic Lodge and served as a supply officer for the Air Cadets.
Carson leaves to mourn: his wife Anne; daughter Susan and husband Calvin Richter; two grandchildren, Dean and Kevin; daughter Linda and husband Dave Loiekreck of Edmonton; daughter Christina of Bahrain; and son Bill and grandchild William of Houston, Texas; and one sister, Olga Capp of High Prairie.

Pallbearers were Alex Coyne, Bill Stecik, Garry Basarab, Dick Hansen, Tom McNabb and Richard Kocon. The Honour Guard was supplied by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 37. Cremation followed.
